There are various women with varying personalities throughout the book. For example, Mary Musgrove could very well be described as a bit of a "nutter". Mrs. Russell acts as if she's a true friend to Anne but is not. Was Jane saying anything about women through these various characters and if so, what?

I'm finding the majority of the women other than Anne intolerable. Elizabeth is a snotty sister, Mary's a hypochondriac and Lady Russell is an interfering moron.
